congressional correspondent dana bash joins us from our washington bureau with more on that side of the story. good morning. >> good morning, carol. two members of congress who have been demanding consultation and input on the administration strategy on syria and they also want evidence that the military action, if it is used, would be justified. >> cnn has told top obama officials insisted to lawmakers on a thursday night conference call they have no doubt assad's regime was behind deadly chemical attacks there. revealing to lawmakers that the u.s. intercepted communications from a high-level syrian official which clearly indicates they were responsible for these. the half hour into telephone briefing began moments after british parliament struck at least a short-term blow to u.s. hopes of a coalition defeating a measure authorizing force against syria. though, obama officials insisted no decisions have been made on military action against syria. cnn is also told they privately made clear to lawmakers that chemical weapons in syria is such a threat, the u.s. could engage with or without supp
be, are not up for debate. cnn's dana bash, our chief congressional correspondent, joins me now. when you look at history, dana, it shows that presidents -- just a reminder. u i any you know this. presidents can launch military action without approval from congress. grenada, '83. pan na, '89. iraq, '91. haiti, '94. kosovo, '99. why a briefing in a couple of hours, dana bash? >> reporter: in short, politics. members of congress, even natural allies of president obama have been demanding coordination. tonight 6:00 p.m. this evening secretaries of state and defense and others will hold a conference call with president obama and other key committee heads to discuss the nation's posture on syria. what's interesting is that lawmakers are not here. they are still back in their states, in their districts on congressional recess. since they're all over the country, some will be on their cell phones. it is not going to be a secure line. meaning it can't be classified. it's going to be an unclassified conversation. one source who's going to be on the call who i talked to kind of rolled his eyes
. jim acosta is covering events for us at the white house while dana bash is in our washington bureau. and, jim, the timing of this decision simply fascinating and based on what you're hearing, really last minute. >> very much so, john. this was a very dramatic development that took place here at the white house yesterday after his administration was essentially moving in the direction of eminent military action, perhaps as soon as this weekend. the president made a different decision. at 7:00 last night he really made a last-minute decision to slow down, buy himself some time, and seek authorization from congress. according to senior administration officials who explained how all of this played out to a group of reporters, within the last hour, it sort of takes a little bit of time to explain but it's worth listening to. at first the story first starts, according to the senior administration officials, that this option of seeking directional approval was not really talked about among his top advisers. it was something just just really kicking around inside the president's head, accor
traffic and lack of interest in women's apparel. dana tulsi and courtney reagan join us this morning. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> dana, it's been said when the retailer who has shirtless models has trouble bringing in young women, there's a problem. what is going on? >> i think it's a broader problem than just abercrombie. the teen environment this year for back to school can't comp the color denim of last year and doesn't have enough newness in the tops business to drive traffic. while traffic is weak, the month of july was also very sluggish, too. we're going to need the rest of august and september in order to sell through these products. but products are a challenge and traffic is a challenge. >> court, some are arguing they just stuck with their old look for too long and that look is not as relevant as it used to be. >> and a lot of consumer surveys of these teen panels both out of piper jaffrays and jeffreys had a lot of teens saying abercrombie just isn't cool anymore. whats my little sister wears, i'm over it. they like names like urban outfitters, perhaps a co
and chief research officer at the intelligentelci advisory group. dana, where does the stock go from here? >> overall it needs to have results. it needs to have same-store sales. it's getting closer to flat than the negative 12% and they're going up against a negative 26% to negative 32% through the back half of the year. >> is this a positive development? is this a negative development? do you say there was going to be an overhang on the stock and the good news is they just cleared that overhang out in one fell swoop? or do you say to yourself, if he's willing to take a loss at this point, that's bad news for everybody? >> i think your first scenario's more likely. i think it was disruptive in terms of what was going on. you have to be able to get the company to some sort of level of stabilization. it was challenging to do that with the boardroom fights happening on main street. and now the holiday season is coming, the most important time of the year for the company. they're trying to get the home department fixed and focus and concentration is the key. >> courtney, the view inside jcpe
to cover every angel of it beginning with dana >>> top obama officials insisted to lawmakers on the thursday night conference call they have no doubt ba sar assad's regime in syria was behind deadly chemical attacks there. secretaries of state, defense and others backed that up by revealing to lawmakers that the u.s. intercepted communications from a high level syrian official, which clearly indicates they were responsible for these weapons, that according to congressman el yol engel who participated in the call. though obama insists no decisions have been made, cnn is also told they privately made clear to lawmakers that chemical weapons in syria is such a threat the u.s. could engage with or without support from great britain. bob corker emerged from briefings thursday announcing support for surgical proportional military strikes, given the evidence of continued use of chemical warfare. bob menendez reaffirmed his support saying a decisive and consequential u.s. response is justified and warranted. . others argued the president still has to come before congress and the amer
. this came during a meeting with a delegation of syrian expatriates. dana bash is joining us on the phone. we know there have been some conference calls between the white house and republicans and democrats. what are you hearing? >> that's right. they're going to take place our understanding is in a couple hours with at least on the senate side with republicans and democrats, but we also just learned that tomorrow, that's sunday, the white house is offering or at least administration officials are offering to come to capitol hill on a sunday to offer a classified briefing on the intelligence that the u.s. has on syria's chemical weapons to any and all members who are in town. sunday is labor day weekend. unclear how many will be able to make it in but it's significant for several reasons. one is that members of congress have been real chomping at the bit to get, understandably, to get information in a classified way that makes them feel comfortable that any kind of military strikes would be justified, but also this is just tea leaf reading here, it might be questionable whether or not they wo
. and congressman dana rohrbacher goes to town hall and assures his constituents that claim change is an evil plot by 97% of the world's scientists and nasa to convince people that
's begin, though, with your chief congressional correspondent, dana bash. she has details of the syria conference call with members of conference -- members of congress going on right now. da dana, what do we know? >> we know that it has begun and this is good news for lawmakers, who have been really asking the obama administration for more information, was we have pretty heavy hitters, the secretaries of defense and state, as you said. other officials, talking to congressional leaders and key committee heads of both parties. that's the good news for them. the bad news for these lawmakers is that obama officials are going to be limited in what they can say, because they're going to be talking, or are as we speak, on a phone line that is not secure. so what that means is that they're going to be able to discuss only unclassified information. and that could rule out what many of these lawmakers really want to know. what the intelligence the administration has the to back claims about assad using chemical weapons, not to mention military options for strikes against the syrian regime. that
disrupting how television is being produced. dana brunetti joins us here at post 9. it's a treat for me because this show is a personal obsession of mine. it's good to have you, dana. >> thanks for having at the. >> how much did the emmy's change the game? >> it made history. it's the first time a show like that has ever been nominated for an emmy. when we set it up at netflix, we sort of assumed we wouldn't be eligible, but the industry came around as we went into production. it's a big game changer as far as being nominated and recognized by the industry as that's a viable means for quality content to get to an audience. >> can you talk about the original pitch meetings? because netflix hadn't done anything like this before and even they said what a massive bet this was for them. there were worries about the distribution models, worries about letting all the episodes float at once, losing that sort of weight, that drip, drip, drip that dramas have lived off for decades. >> as far as releasing them ought al once, we've seen a lot of the drips. a lot of people are still discovering the
industry is down. >>> hello, i'm kimberly guilfoyle, with bob beckel, dana perino, brian kilmeade, eric bolling. it is 5:00. this is "the five." the debate over racial profiling in america was reignited with the trayvon martin case and the uproar over stand your ground laws. now another law is coming under intense national scrutiny and that is stop and frisk. last week, a federal judge banned new york police department from using the crime fighting tool, saying it targets minorities, yesterday, trayvon martin's mother and the head of the naacp got in
to washington to our chief congressional correspondent, dana bash for more on what members of congress -- i know it's quiet in some parts of washington because many members of congress are still away on recess. we know that they were briefed via teleconference in that unsecure line so it wasn't classified, per se, last night. they've been speaking, i'm sure, with the administration today. what are you hearing? >> reporter: that's exactly right. i think a lot of what is going on as we speak is box checking by the administration. making sure that they speak to the key committees. last night what happened was secretary kerry, hagel and others spoke to the chair apd ranking members as well as the leadership in both bodies of congress. right now maybe even as we speak, there is a series of calls going from the national security council to the actual rank and file members of some of those key committees. so they are effectively, for lack of a better way to say, giving them a little love which members of congress always want from any administration, but especially as we've heard very loudly from some o
analyst gloria borger and chief congressional correspondent dana bash. the president hasn't made a final decision but everyone knows he has decided he is going to go ahead and launch some sort of strike against targets in syria. >> at this point it's not if but when. i think when you hear the president speak that way, it's clear he's got a lot of options on the table and maybe he was still deciding about a particular option, but i think you would have to assume given the fact that what we saw today was pretty much of a roll-out, first from the secretary and then the president himself. there was a background briefing for journalists with senior administration officials talking about the evidence on chemical weapons. they're clearly making their case. now the issue has been decided in great britain. they made a point of saying that they've got france and turkey with them. so i think what we're seeing is the beginning of the explanation of why they're going to go in -- >> they may have france and turkey's verbal support but i don't see any military hardware other than u.s. military hardware
. >> on this week's newsmakers, dana rohrabacher. he's chairman of the foreign affairs subcommittee on europe, eurasia, and emerging threats. we discussed a variety of foreign policy topics, including israeli and israeli palestinian peace talks. these makers is sunday on c-span at 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. >> we wrote this about a year and a half ago, it's called 10 letters. it's letters that president obama reads and i went back and found 10 of them who had written to the president. it has been a pretty good read. when that is done, then we go on to act of congress and another guy at "the washington post" and back in the 1970s there was a big difference between then and now it is just that these guys have written. collision 2012 is written and there was a similar writing back in the 2008 campaign. all the guys involved, and that is coming out in august. the other one is through the perilous fight, which is by steve bulger, also someone i used to work with closely. we look back at the six weeks during the war of 1812. >> we saw the movie. two let us know what you are reading this summer. post
begins at 7:00 a.m. eastern time on c-span. >> california congressman dana is our guest this week on news makers. he is the chair of the foreign photographers subcommittee. he discussion the u.s.-palestinian peace talks, russian relations and places like yemen and afghanistan. >> some people say well if we cut the military at least we won't have the temptation to go fight as much. and if the japanese want to fight over the isles against the chinese, let them do it. we are better off santiago out, and if we have a smaller military, we will be disinclined to get involved. if you look at historically when we fight and don't, i don't see a correlation of higher defense budgets and greater likelihood of intervening. the world wars began when we were unprepared. if we fast forward to the ragan years, in many years the ragan years, people can correct me if they wish afterwards or whenever, but the ragan years are still seen as the golden years of american defense policy because we billion up the budget and didn't really use the military. support that wonderful? i am not saying it was all ronald
